I love sport and am interested in Japanese culture so when I heard about an event called the International Sports and Culture Festival, I decided to check it out.
Sure enough, there were lots of sports, and lots of culture. Being extremely shy in such situations, however, I played a passive role, merely observing what were basically kids and their parents having a go at all the activities on offer.
Here were some of my personal highlights of the event:
A lone old guitarist who hadn’t quite managed to pull in the crowds. Poor chap. He was actually quite good.
A poor stuffed toy, or should that be a poor guy stuffed inside the poor stuffed toy?
A duo who should perhaps come to NELS to understand that their name ‘my&jennie’ is not 100% grammatically correct! Their music was pretty cool though.
Anyone for an…ear massage?
How about some kinball?
Another of the half-dozen or so people stuffed inside a creature, such is this country’s love and obsession with them!
Erm…I was not sure how to react when I saw this chap. Apparently it’s about an algae with an erection…obviously!
